Camila Sposati and Falke Pisano, Lundu (Rugendas), 2017

As part of the exhibition To Seminar, BAK organizes a series of performances, talks, and public meetings inquiring how learning about, with, and through art can become a collective practice of thinking and acting out imaginaries alternative to those of the crises-ridden contemporary.

On Thursday 30 March 2017 BAK organizes the seminar Text, a discussion with Job Koelewijn, Falke Pisano, and Mick Wilson, moderated by Vivian Sky Rehberg. Updating the concept of the seminar, this discussion takes the notion of the text from “To the Seminar” by Roland Barthes (1974) from a present-day perspective. The exhibition works by Job Koelewijn, Falke Pisano, and Mick Wilson elucidate the conversation.
